Back In The Saddle Again

Back In The Saddle Again

I'm back from my "vacation," and hitting the pavement running.  It was nice to take a break from the art work for a while, but by the end I was more than ready to get back to work.  And for what it's worth, painting is work.  Granted, it's not as physically taxing as many occupations, but it does require a great deal of concentration, which can take a lot of energy.  The process is very rewarding, and of course, the results are also rewarding (most of the time).

This is Huck, and this is a memorial portrait.  I'm given to understand he was quite the character, and is certainly a beautiful pup.  I'm always so honored to do a memorial portrait, and so saddened as well.  There is something so special in that relationship with a pet that makes the loss so difficult.

I hope you enjoy the painting.  Thanks for reading, and stay safe and well.
